Wliat About Criminals? More sidelights on the home front in Brilain: With the outbreak of war prisoners serving less than three- month sentences were released to receive prison accommodation. .The Recorder of Liverpool now wants to know if the criminal laws of the country are suspended and whether it is any use sentencing culprits who arc only due for light terms of imprisonment. 'Queen Elizabeth leads the way in evolving a new method of con cealing the unsightly gas mask box. She has had a fawn velvet handbag made which while combining the uses of an ordinary handbag, cleverly conceals the gas mask. After the first few days of war women decided that something must be done about the gas m«sk box, and the devices for merely covering the box I (self have been Innumerable. A bright scarlet sash threaded through (lie box and tied on the shoulder gives a jaunty air. Covers of various colors to match outfits have appeared. A West End stors has preparscl for the cold weather and produced a gas mask case-cum-muir in fur. Some of these are in leopard skin.

White Feathers Hcappear Presenting of the white feather —that unhappy habit of the last war whereby a white feather was sent to supposed slackers who often turned, out to be crippled and returned soldiers in civvicsr— has been revived. . J The first two recipients were Lord Wnleran and Lord Sandhurst, two British peers, both of whom army a _. „.. „.„ tinction in the World War, so they can afford to treat the whole thing in a humorous vein. Lord Sandhurst is going to frame his feather alongside one he had given him by an old woman in Bond street, in 1910 when he was on leave from the front. The old army song about murdering the bugler will have to be revised. For the way things look now there won't be buglers much longer, thanks to this mechanical age. In the big depots, members o the Royal Air Force are bein; awakened in the morning by : robot kill-sleep.

Besides reveille, the machini sounds lights out and parade calls The Works of the Messiah nV WILLIAM E. GH.ROY, I). I). ji ^EdUcr of Advance J-ThLs lesson on the works of the Messiah' -presents ' tlio Master in rarlmts relationships. The lesson lopic for young people and adults is "Ministering to Human Needs," and that sums up the details cf the lesson as it sums up the life work of Jesus. We have a picture, first of all, of Jesus as the Great Healer, and we have also suggested rather clearly ihe limits of that hcalin;- ministry and the fact that it was not at all the chief purpose of His ministry. That Jesus should have worked miracles-cf healing is not strange. The mysteries of spiritual healing have not as yet by any means been solved; but if there is murh in that field to confront the too credulous, there is also, n great dcnl to crnfouml the skeptical. If the reader is interested in these things, he can find great evidence of what is suggested here in two books by John Maillard, 'Healing in the Name of Jesus" and "Miracles of Faith," in which he tells of what a modern minister, a man of unselfish purpose and very de- vcut faith, has done in the name Woman At 100 Proves Ability To Enjoy Life ROCKPORT, Mass. (UP) — Al- cady well beyond the century nark, Miss Harriet L. Briggs at- ributes her long life and good icallh to her disregard for "those ieting fads." A retired school teacher, Miss 3rlggs Is proud of her ability "lo njoy life." She reached her IMlh birthday Tarch 23 and celebrated it with a umpluous repast at the Brookline ionic of her niece, Mrs. Henry N. handler, with whom she resides. "I eat what I want, when I •ant It," said Miss Briggs in c x- lalning her phlloscphy of health. "I have found that eating is ne of the real pleasures of life nd my health has been as good s the average, and belter." Daily automobile rides, reading f books and newspapers, and nitting make up her daily rou- ne. She particularly enjoys the ompany of youngsters, In whom I have great faith as to their billty to make their place in the Grid and eventually become fine arents when they grow up." She summed up her philosophy . a few words: "Life begins with every minute, and I am very happy to be alive." . _.,— uu ..i, ,,, ^iiv: imjJlL' of Jesus In this ministry of hcatim? * * » But it Is important to notice that just when the fame of His healing had brought great multitudes around Him, instead of carrying on that ministry of healing, Jesus gave commandment to His disciples to go to the.other side of tile lake. The mission of Jesus was not for the healing of men's bodies but fcr the cure of their souls, and Jesus was always anxious to maintain the major purpose of- His mission. While He performed remarkable acts of healing, He disparaged these in comparison with the lil»h- cr work that He had to perfcrm'in restoring men's souls and bringing abundance of life to those whose lives were frustrated or shattered The secret of the power of Jesus to heal both soul and body is revealed in a portion of this lesson It was in the completeness of His own sacrifice and in«elfishne.w He. had given up everything for the sake of His ministry. When O u c of the scribes came and impulsively hailed Him as a teacher, assurln'" Him that he would fellow Him wherever He went, Jesus replied in the famous words, "The foxes have lOles, and the birds of the heaven iiave nests; bti', the Son of man lath not where to lay hLs iicarl." * * * When another disciple, wishing to fellow Him, spoke lirst of goinir to bury his father, Jesus replied In vords somewhat more difficult lo understand. "Follow me; and leave he dead lo bury their own dead " Whatever these words may mean they indicate the complete c -nse' ^1°? °/ "! c M >* s ler and the true revealed an the sea calmed at His wcrd. The disciples marveled, say- uig, "What manner of man is this, that even the -winds and sea obey him?" And men marvel still as they always will, as they read the wonderful story of,the Christ. Knot Experts Travel World_Plying Hobby BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (UP) — John Hensel and Roam Graumont arc experts when It cnmes t 0 "knotty problems." Between them they have tied thousands of knots, some of them so intricate they have required days of study and patience to complete. Hensel claims to' have duplicated the baffling Gordian knot whiclr was so cleverly made that both ends of the rope were concealed and defied undoing. Both Hensel mid Graumont traveled the world to pursue their hobby of rope niaking and knot tying. In all they have a collection of 3,200, no two of which are like. According lo Hensel, there are only 310 orthodox knots, the simplest of which were used almost from the beginning of time. Rare Sacrificial Altar Shown at Pennsylvania U. 1' 1111; A D E L I'l 1!
